A pedestrian has died after being hit by a car being pursued by police in Brighton.


The two men arrested in connection with the hit and run where a man tragically died in Brighton on Tuesday night (January 10) have been bailed.

Both men, from the city, handed themselves in on Wednesday (January 11) in relation with the collision at the junction of Old Steine and St James's Street at around 10pm.

A 33-year-old man and a 35-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, drink driving, failing to stop for police and failing to report an accident. They have both been bailed for all the offences until February 27 while investigations continue.

Police are still working to trace the next of kin of the victim, a 78-year-old local man, who died.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is independently investigating the circumstances of the police pursuit.
